Following Hurricane Matthew that devastated southern Haiti, we made a promise to Baraderes that 1804 Institute will come back to rebuild a self-sustaining village where they have to worry about hurricane and its aftermath no more.

!!!We are now ready to come back and make good on our promises!!!

Please help us rebuild Baraderes and bring HOPE & JOY to its 40,000 people. You won't regret you did. In the coming days we will be posting more information about what we are specifically doing in Baraderes. Visit us often.

The World Bank reported that over 80% of Haiti’s poor live in rural areas. The further away from urban centers and Port-au-Prince one may travel, the more poverty and desolation one would encounter.

There is no accurate reporting and statistics as to what is left behind, and although local government and NGOs have expressed great interests on decentralization and revitalization of these rural areas no significant implementation works have been done in regards to make this a reality in the next decade.
